Challenges of the bar prep process
The bar exam experience—the preparation process as well as the exam itself—is an intense and memorable time in one’s life. Academically, the test presents special challenges, including subjects not taken in law school, time pressure, and new forms of testing. But aside from the academic issues, the bar exam also presents deeper personal challenges. Many examinees have never taken an exam that lasted more than one day or that served as a gateway to an entire profession. There’s a lot of pressure—external as well as self-imposed—to succeed, and this very pressure can negatively impact performance.
Current and former LEX students represent students or alumni from UCLA, USC, UCSB, UCI, Southwestern, Loyola, Pepperdine, Chapman, and other California schools as well as schools from other parts of the country, such as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, UVA, Emory, and Vanderbilt.
Bar review focuses on skills
Preparation, not just information, is the key to the test. Those who prepare themselves mentally, physically, and logistically for the test—and even for the preparation process itself—have a much greater likelihood of performing at their best when the pressure is on. Students must be ready not only to recall legal rules but to communicate articulately, even in the face of the inevitable uncertainty that arises when facing a new fact pattern on exam day.
That’s why the LEX BarRev approach helps students prepare on many different levels, developing not only the academic knowledge—memorization of the law may be the easier part—but also numerous skills that are integral to success, namely:
- Writing—The written portions of the exam make up most of one’s score
- Reading comprehension—One must learn to glean the key facts from each stimulus
- Test-taking—Effective time investment often separates those who pass from those who don’t
- Reasoning—Logic skills are crucial to good written arguments and effective MBE performance
